We estimated long-term tuberculosis (TB) trends in the US population and assessed prospects for TB elimination. We used a detailed simulation model allowing for changes in TB transmission, immigration, and other TB risk determinants. We evaluated 5 hypothetical scenarios from 2017 to 2100: 1) maintain current TB prevention and treatment activities (base-case), 2) provision of latent TB infection testing and treatment for new legal immigrants, 3) increased uptake of latent TB infection screening and treatment among high-risk populations, including a 3-month isoniazid-rifapentine regimen, 4) improved TB case detection, 5) improved TB treatment quality...

PURPOSE/OBJECTIVE(S): Brain metastasis velocity (BMV) is a metric that describes the rate of development of new brain metastases (BM) after initial stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS). A limitation in the application of BMV is it cannot be applied until time of first BM failure after SRS. We developed initial BM velocity (iBMV), a new metric that accounts for the number of BM at first SRS and the time since initial cancer diagnosis. MATERIALS/METHODS: We reviewed patients with BM treated at our institution with upfront SRS without WBRT...

Stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) is associated with an increased risk of vertebral compression fracture. While bone is typically considered radiation resistant, fractures frequently occur within the first year of SBRT. The goal of this work was to determine if rapid deterioration of bone occurs in vertebrae after irradiation. Sixteen male rhesus macaque non-human primates (NHPs) were analyzed after whole-chest irradiation to a midplane dose of 10 Gy. Ages at the time of exposure varied from 45-134 months...

Replacing lead in halide perovskites is of great interest due to concerns about stability and toxicity. Recently, lead free double perovskites in which the unit cell is doubled and two divalent lead cations are substituted by a combination of mono- and trivalent cations have been synthesized as bulk single crystals and as thin films. Here, we study stability and optical properties of all-inorganic cesium silver (I) bismuth (III) chloride and bromide nanocrystals with the double perovskite crystal structure...

BACKGROUND/AIMS: Brain metastases from bladder cancer are rare and published outcomes data are sparse. To date, no institutions have reported a series of patients with brain metastases from bladder cancer treated with stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS). Our aim was to identify patients with brain metastases from bladder primaries treated with SRS with or without surgical resection and report the clinical outcomes. METHODS: Patients meeting eligibility criteria at our institution between 2000 and 2017 were included...

The optimal timing of pretreatment with prasugrel in percutaneous coronary intervention (PCI) for acute coronary syndrome (ACS) is unclear. We used optical coherence tomography (OCT) to compare in-stent thrombus volume immediately after PCI between the administration of low-dose prasugrel (20 mg loading dose) at the time of diagnosis of ACS (early prasugrel: n = 34) and the administration of low-dose prasugrel immediately after diagnostic angiography prior to PCI for ACS (late prasugrel: n = 56). The durations between the administration of prasugrel and OCT in the early prasugrel group and late prasugrel group were 5...

PURPOSE: This article seeks to take the next step in examining the insights that nurses and other healthcare providers can derive from applying behavioral economic concepts to support genomic decision making. As genomic science continues to permeate clinical practice, nurses must continue to adapt practice to meet new challenges. Decisions associated with genomics are often not simple and dichotomous in nature. They can be complex and challenging for all involved. DESIGN: This article offers an introduction to behavioral economics as a possible tool to help support patients', families', and caregivers' decision making related to genomics...

Motivation: Single-cell RNA-sequencing (scRNA-seq) has brought the study of the transcriptome to higher resolution and makes it possible for scientists to provide answers with more clarity to the question of "differential expression". However, most computational methods still stick with the old mentality of viewing differential expression as a simple "up or down" phenomenon. We advocate that we should fully embrace the features of single cell data, which allows us to observe binary (from Off to On) as well as continuous (the amount of expression) regulations...

Nodular fasciitis (NF) is a self-limiting fibrous neoplasm that can be mistaken for a soft tissue sarcoma. It is characterised by rapid growth, slight pain and local tenderness. Although it is frequently found in the forearm, a lesion distal to the wrist is quite rare. We present two unusual cases of NF involving the palm, supported by detecting ubiquitin specific protease 6 gene rearrangement. The first patient had non-intraneural NF presenting as peripheral neuropathy affecting the digital nerve while the second patient suffered from painless, non-tender NF in the palm, which had not regressed spontaneously during the five months prior to surgery...

BACKGROUND: With the recent implementation of the Medicare Quality Payment Program, providers face increasing accountability for delivering high-quality care. Such pay-for-performance programs aim to leverage systematic data captured by electronic health record (EHR) systems to measure performance; however, the fidelity of EHR query for assessing performance has not been validated compared with manual chart review. We sought to determine whether our institution's methodology of EHR query could accurately identify cases in which providers failed to prescribe statins for eligible patients with coronary artery disease...

It is unknown whether the association of high-sensitivity troponin I (hs-TnI) with adverse cardiovascular outcomes varies by the presence of chronic kidney disease (CKD). We examined the association of hs-TnI with adverse cardiovascular outcomes in those with and without CKD in 4,107 (mean age, 64 years; 63% men; 20% black) patients from the Emory Cardiovascular Biobank who underwent coronary angiography. CKD (n = 1,073) was defined as estimated glomerular filtration rate <60 ml/min/1.73 m2 or urine albumin/creatinine ratio >30 mg/g at baseline...

Risk factors for adverse events after total knee arthroplasty (TKA) relating to malignancy have not been well studied. Thus, the purpose of this study was to conduct a retrospective case-control outcome and cost analysis after TKA in this population. Patients with a history of breast cancer (BrCa) were identified based on the International Classification of Disease 9th revision codes. An age- and sex-matched cohort was also identified of patients without a history of BrCa. Complications, length of stay, comorbidity burden, and reimbursements were tracked at 90 days...

We present the case of a 56-yr-old previously healthy male who presented with an approximately 1-yr history of intermittent dizziness, near syncope, and holocephalic headaches when turning his head to the left side for a prolonged period of time. He had a distant history of a previous anterior cervical discectomy and fusion at the C6-7 level. He was neurologically intact. Static, dynamic, and vascular imaging confirmed hypoplasia of the right vertebral artery and dominance of the left vertebral artery that completely filled the posterior circulation...

BACKGROUND: Restoration of walking function is a primary concern of neurorehabilitation with respect to the aspired social and vocational reintegration. To date, the best practice for improving gait early after stroke is still object of debate. On one hand, repetitive task-specific approaches with higher intensities of walking have been observed to result in greater improvements of gait after stroke. Conversely there is some evidence that conventional gait training would be more effective for facilitating walking ability after stroke...

BACKGROUND: Posttransplant lymphoproliferative disorder (PTLD) is a life-threatening complication of solid organ transplantation. Histologic heterogeneity and a lack of treatment standards have made evaluating clinical outcomes in specific patient populations difficult. This systematic literature review investigated the impact of the PTLD histologic subtype on survival in a large data set. METHODS: Case series were identified on PubMed with the search terms post-transplant lymphoproliferative disorder/disease, PTLD, and solid organ transplantation, with additional publications identified through reference lists...

Micellar nanocrystals (micelles with encapsulated nanocrystals) have become an emerging major class of nanobiomaterials. We describe a method of fabricating micellar nanocrystals based on combining top-down electrospray, bottom-up self-assembly, and solvent-based structure control. This method involves first using electrospray to generate uniform ultrafine liquid droplets, each of which functions as a micro-reactor in which self-assembly reaction occurs forming micellar nanocrystals, with the structures (micelle shape and nanocrystal encapsulation) controlled by the organic solvent used...
